Description

In the midst of social distancing and sheltering in place, applying to college feels more complicated than ever. Extracurriculars, college visits, and testing have all been drastically transformed, and your college search process has had to change, too. You're probably asking yourself, "What should I be doing now?" We've gathered a group of college admissions experts to help you figure out your next steps, including:

  • How to launch a college search and "demonstrate interest" from afar
  • How to identify and pursue your passions while following social distancing guidelines
  • How to use this time for self-reflection and turn those ideas into essays when the time comes
  • How to set up a standardized testing schedule

Meet the Panel:

Debra Landesberg, M.S., is the Founder and President of MyCollegeResource.net and BestFitU.net. Serving as a college counselor for 20 years, her student-driven approach emphasizes self-discovery during the college preparation and application process.

Monica James is the founder of CompetitiveEdge, which has been helping students since 2006 prepare for college and internship interviews and persuasive college essays and applications.

Kim Lifton is President and Founder of Wow Writing Workshop, a premier college essay coaching and professional training company, offering private, virtual writing coaching services to students and professionals throughout the world.
